History
This was only one of 7 to be delivered to Hanover, Germany. The Remotec wheels utilized were light weight wheels that were added to Mercedes, Lamborghini's and Porsche's for racing. The car was modified by AMG, but to what extent I am still finding out, no records on either side are available. A Blaupunkt stereo system replaced the Becker unit and a Panasonic Cockpit 710 (manual equilizer) was installed. 36 speakers were added in total, the installations very professionally done. The head unit was swapped and a tuner on a stem was added as well. The seats were modified by Recaro and had pneumatic bolsters added to them. Indications are the car was sold to a Navy pilot and he brought it over in the early 80's as a grey market car.

I acquired it at an estate sale after the old gentleman passed away. There is a good chance that there was documentation but was lost or simply tossed after his death, not knowing what it was.

All numbers match the build sheet.

62K miles

I add about 30 miles / month to it.
